My weird ways of thinking

I'm pretty sure people are going to think I'm crazy after reading this... or maybe agree? Well which ever one go at it. So here is a totally bizarre scenario that I'm frequently thinking about. I'll try as hard as I can to make it make sense. (: Okay... I'm always thinking what if people do not see the same colors. Like for example you put two people in a yellow room and ask them what the color of the room is. They could both respond "yellow" but what if my yellow is really purple but I've always heard it called yellow so there for I just call it yellow? Or what if your yellow is really my blue? Who knows!! I know that sounds totally doubtful but what if..!! I'm glad that my Aunt April also thinks this. That's a little reassuring. I know I haven't wrote a blog in a bazillion years but thanks to my five loyal blog followers that didn't dump me (: More blogs to come I promise!!

☺ Now you got 6 loyal Blog followers....and hmm..what if my "light yellow" is really your "bright yellow" and viceversa? That is definitely something to ponder...I think I might actually be confused for the rest of the evening!!! LOL!!☺

Hello, I found your blog thru your aunt's giveaway.

In reality, many people do see colors as it is but call it differently or even describe a color as a taste or an emotion. It is called SYNESTHESIA.
Our brain sometimes has a wonderful way of connecting to our emotions and other senses that give each color a whole different meaning!

You know, i agree with the color thing. I can't even count how many times my husband has described something as one color and I think its a completely different color! CRAZY!

You're not crazy. I think those that are color blind wonder what "normal" people are really seeing since their colors are off.

I've wondered the same thing! youre not alone!

Oddly enough, I've pondered this many times. Vision is different from person to person, so I would imagine that tone and intensity of color might be as well. Interesting thought isn't it?

I too have thopught a lot about this. Especially after trying to choose paint colors with my husband. There were s many times that we were looking at the same color, yet describing two completely different things! So, you are not alone!

I too found you via your aunt's blog. I have a little sister your age, so it's nice to hear things from a teenage perspective. I am definately going to start following you!
